Mention lobster and everyone is interested.  Mention avocado and everyone is interested.  Put them together and you have a winning soup.

To check the ripeness of an avocado, gently squeeze it, and you should feel a slight “mushiness”.  If the avocado feels hard when giving the gentle squeeze, it is not ready for eating.  To remove the avocado from its outer shell, slice the avocado in the long axis, running the knife around.  Take the avocado in two hands and gently twist and the two halves will separate.  Remove the stone, and then with a spoon gently run around the inside of the shell and the green avocado will separate from it.  The lobster meat can be tinned or fresh.
